I cannot remember seeing any variants for either the Marianas or the Philippine Sea engagements. Has anyone seen maps and data for these?

I'm a feder-allergic and I blame the Klingon for not having smashed the Federation in time to save us from Star Trek serials.

As long as I know there is nothing on the Marianas, but if had had a look at the image section of Flat Top you would have seen this:

I looked but didn't find that. Needs a bit of art added to it. But, it's a good beginning.

There it is, look better.
It is part of a long time ago published scenario. It would be nice if the Spanish fans of the game see if they can up-load it in the file section.

I had searched the files section. That's where I had expected such a thing to be, not in the images section. And the scenario rules, OOB, and counter manifests aren't located anywhere (barring being placed in some oddball location).

You can't up-load such files without the author authorization, so you won't find it there. When I uploaded the article "Aircraft Carrier in Flattop by Mark A. Campbell", I made it after I received Campbell's authorization, and I waited several months before receiving it.
If you look in the Community Wiki section of the game you will find an almost complete list of what has been published on Flat Top. Including a second scenario published in Spain. None of them is present here since up-loading them without authorization can lead the staff to delete them or worst, but at least one of the two was available for download from the blog of a Spanish. Somewhere in the threads there should be the link, have a look.

The Battle of Leyte was published in the magazine Lider long, long time ago. The publisher is out of business and I think there is no problem about it. You can download the magazine from: http://www.sinergiaderol.com/revistas/lider-joc.html . It is the #5 issue.

It is written in perfect Spanish, of course, but the order of battle and the map can be useful, I think. It is not a historical scenario, the Japanese are a lot more powerful that actually they were. It is supposed that the Battle of Marianas never took place and the Japanese aircraft carrier force can fight a last stand. The same for the land based air, that historically was annihilated before the air-naval battle. Without these points the battle would be unilateral.

Anyway, I will too have a look at them, since there can be interesting things to see. cool
Like the better copy of the The Battle of Leyte article that now I have.
